FakerWiki

Fakerwiki is a library for local testing of Python ScraperWiki scripts. Mostly it’s just a copy of the ScraperWiki library with the database bits removed.

Usage

cd fakerwiki
mkvirtualenv --no-site-packages fakerwiki
pip install -r requirements.txt
python setup.py install
python your_script_name.py

You can also use ‘pip install fakerwiki’, but this obviously won’t build out your virtualenv with the standard scraperwiki packages from the requirements.txt in the repository.

What works?

scraperwiki.scrape()
scraperwiki.datastore.save()

What could be added easily?

scraperwiki.datastore.retrieve()
scraperwiki.datastore.fetch()
scraperwiki.metadata.save()
scraperwiki.metadata.get()
geocoding with dummy data
local caching of scraped pages
